CreateM3U ~ m3u Playlist Creator

Drag & drop files or folders to create .m3u playlists. For each folder, a single .m3u file is created named after that folder. It will not replace already existing playlists of that name. The generated playlists do not contain EXTM3U information because a simple .m3u is nothing more than a text file with a list of file names per line. The initial tool for this task for me was a batch file.  😉

As the generated playlists only include filenames without any path, and they are located with the media files, they can be moved together with the files, as an example, for portable mp3 player usage.

M3U is a computer file format for a multimedia playlist. One common use of the M3U file format is creating a single-entry playlist file pointing to a stream on the Internet. The created file provides easy access to that stream and is often used in downloads from a website, for emailing, and for listening to Internet radio.

Although originally designed for audio files, such as MP3, it is commonly used to point media players to audio and video sources, including online sources. M3U was originally developed by Fraunhofer for use with that company’s Winplay3 software,[1] but numerous media players and software applications now support the format. ~ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M3U
